    What Junior LOVED more than almost anything was to cadge me into taking him for a Walk..I'd come home from work, pile up at the foot of my bed, & here he'd come, whining & doing ANYTHING to get me to take him for his walk.. He'd hop up on my bed, paddlefoot to the end, & either put his paw atop my head, or his snout. Those were his "Signs" he wanted attention. Funny how he always got what he wanted. Saturdays, my mom would open my door, he'd come in, stand besides my bed at a 45 degree angle & whine til I got up. If I didn't get up, sometimes he'd paw at me til I did. Or he'd proceed to get in the sack w/me. I'm a pretty large specimen, & sharing a twin size bed w/a rather large dog wasn't much fun. But I'd heard stories all my life about how Dobies would have LONG conversations w/their owners over everything- They're true. No, they CAN'T talk, but anybody who's ever had a Dobie will tell you they can communicate just fine, thank you, w/their humans.. Vicious, nasty Killer beasts ? Yeah. There was one guy I worked with who had a Certified Killer-Diller Dobie. He came up to the office one day, & the Dobie was in the bed of his pickup. I went out there, started talking to the Dobie, & "Loving" him all over. His owner said not many people do THAT.. I backed off from the pickup, the Dobie pawed me,& I resumed loving him... The guy who was his daddy just grinned & shook his head...

    Meet our current "Guardian" Dobie named Basil (7 y/o Shelter dog, owned for one year now, former name was Diesel which stinks in our opinion so renamed him Basil)

    Haha recognise that 45 degree sign! And yes they DO understand when talking to them. I am always cautious to enter a car which got any dog in it... but will approach any Dobie out on the street :)
